CompTIA CASP+ (CAS-004)


Those looking to complete the CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP+) certification will find in this course an overview of the process in achieving the certification and a brief amount of details about the exam required to pass in order to receive the certification. CASP+ covers the technical knowledge and skills required to conceptualize, design, and engineer secure solutions across complex enterprise environments. The certification is designed for advanced security professionals that have knowledge of Security+, have a few years of experience in the field, and will go on to learn more advanced skills and need to understand things like risk management and incident response and is also approved by U.S. Dept. of Defense to meet IA technical and management certification requirements.

You're watching IT Pro TV. [MUSIC] Hello everybody and welcome to the committee a cast plus CAS+004 course. Looking forward to spending time with you, it's gonna be a little bit of a different journey than you maybe used to with us here at IT Pro TV. You're gonna get to see myself throughout the course, but I'm gonna have two different hosts jumping in and helping us with different parts of the course. You'll see mike Roderick and you'll see Chris ward jumping in and helping us out. So be on the lookout for them, they'll be swapping places throughout the different domains. We have a total of four different domains we're gonna be going over and it's interesting, I've been working with comp Tia well since. Pretty much comp Tia started working on their material presenting courses and helping people learn how to study for, take and pass com t exams across the depth and breadth of the committee landscape. But in particular when Cast plus came on the scene took the original beta exam for it and I've been doing the com to Cast Plus shows that we have here the courses we have here dot IT pro TV since we started offering this in our library. Looking forward to this most recent addition. There are some updates and changes. So especially if you've been working with maybe the O O three version of this course or transitioning to the new exam and the new material, you wanna be on the lookout for some things? Let's start by talking quickly about what the domains that make up the cast 004 CS 004 knowledge base are. There are four domains that make up this knowledge base, security, architecture, security operations, security engineering and cryptography and of course GRC governance, risk and compliance. Those names should sound somewhat familiar to you if you're familiar with the knowledge base that makes up the cast plus material, it is roughly approximate to what we've seen across multiple earlier versions of the exam. But as always there's nipping, tucking updating and tweaking that takes place across those main domain topics. So be on the lookout for new areas of knowledge that you wanna spend time on speaking of new areas of knowledge, the exam has also undergone a bit of a revision. There are going to be three main different types of questions or things you're not responsible for doing. You'll hear both mike and myself chris and myself talked about these in depth across the different domains as they come up. But you're gonna have traditional multiple choice questions, so certainly questions you are intimately familiar with answering in multiple different vendor exams. Those are always pretty standardized and the same. But you're then gonna have scenario questions, a specific type or form of multiple choice questions where you're given business requirements. Perhaps a story, a small paragraph that explains to you what is happening at a moment in time. And then you're asked as the security professional to insert yourself and make the appropriate decisions or decisions and derive the correct approach and therefore the right answer. Or perhaps if it is to choose all that apply right answers to drive that question forward and answer it successfully. So be on the lookout for those. We'll be giving you some examples of how to approach those scenarios, what they may look like and methodologies that will help you to be successful there. And then a new area that's been introduced in the most up to date version of the CSO for exam as of the beginning of 2022, which is what we call the PBI's, the performance based items. These are hands on elements or you're gonna be given environments that you can go into and actually engage in one or more tasks. You may be asked for instance to run an end map scan or use wire Shark to profile perhaps a network or a system or look at log output or scan output from a tool. And then understand something that's happening and as a result make a choice or take the next step in the process. So be on the lookout for those will demonstrate those towards the middle to end of the course in domain three Chris and I will be coming at you with some examples of that. We'll look at end map and wire shark certainly as examples where we go a little hands on and get in use the tools and show you how to make sure you're prepared for that. But there is a list of forensic tools and any of those tools potentially can be items that come up in that PBI area. So do you be on the lookout for those? Make sure you are focused on them? I'm excited I know speaking on behalf of mike and Chris they're excited as well. All of us are putting a lot of time and effort into making sure this course is everything you need to take and pass this exam. The only thing missing is you. So I'm gonna go get ready. The other guys are standing by there ready to go as well. We're gonna be waiting for you. All you need to do is stop watching this episode and get started with all the other course material. I'll see you there but until then I'm gonna say goodbye and I'll see you soon. [MUSIC] Thank you for watching IT Pro TV
